SEO Is An Important Part Of Your Team

SEO is important because it makes your website and business brand more visibile to search engines like Google and Bing. It is the primary source of organic, (free and natural), traffic to your website. It builds trust and authority within the content, as well as the website itself. It provides a better user experience, (UX), which in turn results in more conversions from traffic, to customers. SEO has both on-site and off-site elements, depending upon your situation. For example, if you have a brick and mortar business, Google Business Profiles, and other off-site points are involved.

  • Digital SEO Strategist: For improved organic search performance,(SEO), to rank higher in search engine results pages, (SERPS), and to achieve a better user experience, a digital marketing SEO strategiest is necessary. Ideally, this person should be involved in the process of building a new website. However, SEO can be implimented at any time to improve website performance and user experience. This role increasingly addresses content and branding, but the main focus is on the “back-end” of your website. (And some “off-site signals for local business.) To keep up with Google’s algorithm updates and the overall multi-faceted and complex environment of search optimization, this role is often a long-term endeavor. See examples of SEO services offered by The Leaning Tree Digital.
  • Website Developer: Too often, business owners confuse web developers as people who can achieve long-term results. In actuality, it is just the first step. A developer covers the nuts and bolts of a website. Their focus is the “user interface” of a website. Their design process is what you and your visitors will see in the “front-end” when the URL is typed in. Contrary to what some may claim, developers are not specialized in the “back-end” functions of a website that involve search engine optimization. Shortly after a new website is launched, most developers move on.
  • Paid Advertising SEM: In the modern digital world it is nearly impossible to find success using only one method of lead generation. The same rings true for PPC. It is especially important for AdWords and Organic SEO to work in tandem. Studies have found that when a website has strong organic SERP’s, the click-through rate for PPC will increase. Without a solid organic strategy in place paid advertising will empty pockets. There is a place for paid advertising- done right. Look for a person dedicated and experienced specifically in PPC.
